Have a customer that wants me to build him a PC and he will be taking it to Europe.  Will a standard voltage converter work or should we be looking for a special power supply?  He mentioned that his place over there will run it at a different frequency than here, such that 50 Hz AC won't be compatible with 60 Hz AC.

Hi,  Please see the USB adapter picture attached. This adapter has one male port and seven female ports. As we know, usually we plug the adapter's the male end into PC etc, and mouse and keyboard USB's male end plug into the adapter's female port.

Now I want to use a male-to-male usb cable to replace the adapter's male port. That means one end of the cable plug into the PC and other end of the cable plug into the female port of the adapter. Do you think this would work well? Thank you

Are there any utilities that will tell exactly which type of hardware peripheral cards are being used inside of a Windows 10 computer?

A remote user has several peripheral cards installed within her computer and I would like to get a list of what the model numbers of these peripheral cards are.

I have already tried using utilities such as Belarc but haven't been able to generate such a list.

Are there any programs or utilities that can do this?

I'm having a hard time finding either fans that have a molex connector or the adapter for 3/4 pin to molex.  My criteria is:

quiet (within reason)
very good airflow

Saw some great fans online, but the molex connector is the issue as the one connector on the mobo is taken by the one and only rear fan.  I want to install two 140mm fans at the two slots on top of my case.  The case is a NZXT Source 210 S210-001.

How many things do I need to charge my "schumacher instant power" portable generator with solar panel?

I was reading about Petya variants to protect in our company. We have multiple file servers don't want to let Petya to spread and don't let the infected computer to encrypt mapped drives to file servers.

1. It uses SMB protocol like WannaCry, if fails
2. It uses PSEXEC, if fails
3. It uses WMIC call to remote hosts
And also tries to get user password using LSADUMP

Petya variants have 3 ways to contact remote hosts, then. SMB, PSEXEC, WMIC.

We disabled SMB1 and installed patches according to MS17-010. So I can take it off the list.
Isn't PSEXEC uses WSMAN and WINRM, same as WMIC? If then, to block spreading to network, how can I block those two client components in user computers? I don't want to block listening sides because we sometimes use to access laptop. But if I can block outgoing WSMAN and WINRM calls from computers, I can isolated the infected computers. How do I do that?

Also, it doesn't seem as Petya variants encrypt mapped drives, but local disk only. Please confirm if anyone knows.


Thank you in advanced!!!

Hi I'm trying to uninstall Intel Management Engine Components with psexec on a remote machine. The script I'm using is:

psexec \\lt-4364 "C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Intel(R) Management Engine Components\Uninstall\setup.exe"

It says starting and just hangs there while the setup.exe *32 on the target computer does nothing. Does the command only work with msi files?

Looking for a article that give a understanding in the main hardware of a computer (processor i5/i7-hard drive sata/ssd) so I can make the right choice type of computers to buy depending on its use.

For example I need now a computer for a client that uses heavy outlook downloading from multiple accounts total around hundred emails per day. QB thy have on their server 75 company files and the users switch consently between files heavy printing and scanning and other light applications I was planing to go with a i5 but wondering if will be enough.

Hi Experts

I am having a problem trying to diagnose a problem I have with a simple high side switching circuit that is on a PCB. It works fine on a breadboard. The schematic is below. RL is a placeholder to where the rest of the circuit goes. The rest of the circuit I dont think matters because there should be no current draw if the mosfet if off. Please see attached schematic.
It is supposed to work like this. I have a microcontroller controlling the power to the circuit. To turn on the power I set the IO pin high and the Mosfet to M1 turns on and so grounds the gate of M2 and so switching M2 on. This all works fine.

The problem is that when I set the GPIO low I get 0V at the output of RL but if I measure the curent draw its around 150mA. This should be 0 or maybe just a few uA. Shorting R2 to ground has no difference.

I am having trouble finding out out to troubleshoot this and why this would be. Any help in how I can find the problem would be great.

Are these symptoms indicative of a faulty mosfet or something else.

Thanks!

I have the need to get a BOM with all components , currently using Tc. CK86 , but this doesn't give enough information, so I want to do this by SQL, I come from oracle background and dont know how could I get this done in DB2 R/3, I do not have access to query builder or quickview , but i do have read access via SQL, I'm currently trying to figure out a way of getting this info using tables :

MAST Material to BOM Link
STKO BOM Header
STPO BOM item

Does any of you  have a solution for this?

In Oracle I did something like the following:
SELECT DISTINCT LEVEL
	,sys_connect_by_path(msil.segment1, ' @ ') AS "BOM TREE"
	,msi.segment1
	,lpad(' ', LEVEL, '') || msil.segment1 Cod_Component
	,msil.item_type
	,msil.description Desc_Component
	,BIC.component_quantity
	,msiL.primary_unit_of_measure
FROM mtl_system_items msi
	,bom_bill_of_materials bom
	,BOM_INVENTORY_COMPONENTS BIC
	,MTL_SYSTEM_ITEMS MSIL
WHERE msi.organization_id = 332
	AND BOM.ASSEMBLY_ITEM_ID = MSI.INVENTORY_ITEM_ID
	AND BOM.ORGANIZATION_ID = MSI.ORGANIZATION_id
	AND bom.bill_sequence_id = bic.bill_sequence_id
	AND nvl(bic.disable_date, sysdate) >= SYSDATE
	AND BIC.component_ITEM_ID = MSIL.INVENTORY_ITEM_ID
	AND Bom.ORGANIZATION_ID = MSIL.ORGANIZATION_ID
	AND msil.inventory_item_status_code = 'Active'
	AND msi.inventory_item_status_code = 'Active' connect BY prior bic.component_item_id = bom.assembly_item_id
	START
                  WITH msi.segment1 = trim(:parte)
        ORDER BY 2

Please provide me with recommendations for purchasing the best heavy duty backpack that will be able to carry three laptops.

I have already gone through several backpacks that simply aren't very heavy duty and develop problems like zippers unzipping and holes because they are unable to support the weight or bulkiness of carrying three laptops.

I'm using a plugin architecture where the Host app (actually WinForms) doesn't know about the components until runtime, then loads them (from http://shazwazza.com/post/Developing-a-plugin-framework-in-ASPNET-with-medium-trust.aspx  but Winforms) .
My simple problem is, when I click VS F5/Run it doesn't rebuild unless i Rebuild All (very slow) , even if i delete the dll folder, its seems to be using the previous one - does it get locked in memory of something? Is there a post build script i could run to purge and delete the plugin when build the host?

Have a PC that did not start and beeped 6 times (HP) so I removed the graphic card. I tried a different card but gave the same result (6 beeps).

I ran HP system diagnostic everything passed.

I get an error when trying to run windows update (code 80072F8F)

In device manager everything seem to up to date (no yellow flag)

I want to update this PC which is currently running window 8 to windows 10.

Can I do the install as is, or first get to the bottom of the issue?

I am considering buying some used RAM from a friend.

I would like to benchmark the RAM speed before and after the installation of the new RAM.

What would be good and simple utility for doing so?
Preferably a portable program that doesn't require installation.

Thanks!

I am having a great deal of difficulty typing. For some reason it
seems to be only on the laptop and only when I am on the web.  Although I just
typed an email and it was a jumbled mess.  When typing the words are sometimes jumbled and lag behind the typing up to 4-5 seconds.
I've tried rebooting, resetting the browser and going into the mouse settings.  Not sure what is causing this for sure.
